Organizers for the Gemmell Awards have announced the closure of the awards. According to the press release:
Unfortunately, after ten years, the Gemmell Awards will draw to a close with immediate effect. With a lack of suitable volunteers to take on current committee roles, and insufficient manpower to deliver the wide range of tasks involved, the present team has been left with no choice but to wind up the awards.
For more information, including the full press release, see the Gemmell Awards site.
